Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. But if you’re reading this on the Friday after Thanksgiving, haven’t you had your fill of cooking for one week? I know I have, so I’m not going to post anything new today.
But if you’re set on making something delicious, why not try one of my favorite recipes already posted here:
Aziz Ansari’s Mom’s Chicken Korma
Oh, this is a good one. A little spicy but flavorful dish that’s easy to make.
Easy Spinach and Mushroom Alfredo
It’s hard to go wrong with this one.
Down And Dirty Coconut Shrimp Curry
Feeling shrimpy? Impress those houseguests who won’t leave with something delicious. “That will make them stay,” you say? Add some hot peppers and say you’re making crazy-hot Mexican food next. They’ll depart the next morning.
Thai Pork Fried Rice
Simple. Delicious. Inexpensive. Just what you need after blowing all your money on stupid, overpriced Christmas gifts on the most shameful day in America, Black Friday.
Or throw all those to the wind and make something really special. Any one of these will make any effort you put into making it well worth it.
Red-Braised Pork Belly
Even if you completely fail at this, it will be delicious. Why? Pork belly.
Caramelized Pork Belly And Shrimp
My absolute favorite and general go-to dish for guests.
Buta No Kakuni (Japanese Porkbelly)
This is one of the best foods Japan has to offer. Making it is cheaper than flying over there.
Those early revelers were probably knocked out by their marathon feast, and most people today are familiar with the post-Thanksgiving food coma. But often the blame falls on the bird. Turkey allegedly causes drowsiness because it is packed with a nutrient called tryptophan.
Thank you for your comment. Indeed, tryptophan is a downside of serving turkey. Along with the bland taste, dryness and lack of originality. No offense to you turkey fans!
If turkey is not the culprit, then what besides dessert causes post-Thanksgiving torpidity? It may simply be a function of scarfing down enormous quantities of food.
Agreed. There’s no doubt that the said scarfing results in PTFC–post-Thanksgiving food coma.
